Cowboys Once Again Top Forbes' NFL Franchise Valuations With $2.3B Estimate

NFL teams are worth an average of $1.17B heading into the '13 season, up 5% from last year, with the Cowboys ranking as the "most valuable NFL team for the seventh consecutive year," according to Mike Ozanian of FORBES. The Cowboys' estimated value of $2.3B is far above the Patriots, who rank second with a value of $1.8B. The Cowboys and Patriots join the Texans, Falcons and Rams is posting "double-digit gains in value." The gains for the Patriots and Texans "are the result of stadiums that generate a lot of cash and converting success on the gridiron into more local media and sponsorship revenue." The Lions were the only team "to post an operating loss," marking the fourth straight year the club has lost money (FORBES.com, 8/14).
